The Fear Free Way - Dog trainers and veterinary staff working together
Finding the time to incorporate dog training and behaviour into a busy vet clinic can appear daunting.
Working in a busy vet clinic for over 25 years I see on a daily basis the time constraints placed on veterinary staff, and the often rushed answers to behaviour and training questions that clients may ask. Working together, dog trainers can provide valuable resources and marketing strategies to engage and educate clients visiting the vet clinic. This results in well-mannered, calm patients for veterinary staff to treat, new clients for professional dog trainers and most importantly happier dogs!
As professional dog trainers we can work together with veterinary staff to provide pet owners, and other pet industry professionals, with the knowledge and tools to not only look after a pet’s physical wellbeing but their emotional wellbeing as well.
